Meditation and Dharma Talk with Carol Kano and Noliwe Alexander
November 17 @ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm
We are extremely fortunate to welcome guest teachers Carol Cano and Noliwe Alexander to Insight Community of the Desert. They will offer reflections on healing the heart through the sweet medicines of compassion, power and love. They are deeply skilled teachers and deeply connected spiritual friends (kalyana mitta) of our founding teacher, Larry Yang. Please help us to warmly welcome them as they will have just finished teaching a retreat at Joshua Tree.
Dr. Carol Cano, PhD, began practicing over 30 years ago at Wat Kow Tahm in Thailand and is active internationally in building communities and teaching Dharma. She has been trained at Spirit Rock and is currently in their Retreat Teacher Training. Carol is a core teacher and former board member of East Bay Meditation Center. Carol co-founded Philippine Insight Meditation Community in Philippines. Her unique teachings are deeply grounded in Basque, Native American and Buddhist influences that braid the Dharma along indigenous wisdom and Earth-based practices. Carol reminds us to keep groundedded in our hearts as we uphold spiritual ideals and encourages us to remain balanced within the demands of modern life.
